Virginia Cavalier Close-Up: Mike Timms


Mike Timms is a specimen. One of the top longstick midfielders in the country, he’s setting the tempo for what’s to be expected from future All-American longsticks. Take a look at his bio on the Virginia Lacrosse website and you’ll see exactly what I mean.

Timms’ story is an interesting one – overcoming obstacles has been the theme.  But even with the hardships he’s faced, his lacrosse career continues to flourish.  From his impressive quickness for a big man to his relationship with his teammates and Dom Starsia,  he is the perfect example of a great defensive leader. 

The video below gives us a look at Timms’ journey. Definitely worth the watch.

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
